Julia – Co-founder, Curo | Chartered Accountants

I’m Julia Gallagher, a tax focused Chartered Accountant and Chartered Tax Advisor, which gives me a comprehensive understanding of how tax affects your business. After qualifying at Moore Stephens, I moved to the Owner Manager Business department at KPMG to carry out audit work but quickly followed my passion for tax and became part of the tax team for this sector, qualifying with KPMG as a Chartered Tax Advisor. I then spent time in various other tax departments gaining experience in large business and advisory before leaving in 2005 to launch Curo. My specialism is providing inclusive tax advice to owner manager businesses and their families, not only on the corporate tax aspects but also succession planning and protecting family wealth, both on-shore and off-shore issues. During my time at Curo we have also developed a niche in various tax relief claims including research and development and capital allowances.

Stuart – Partner, Curo | Chartered Accountants

I'm Stuart Wood, an experienced and commercial Chartered Accountant with exposure to many different industries, sizes of business operations and structures. I initially trained at a mid-tier firm, Clement Keys &Co, West Bromwich and then moved to KPMG in 1987, qualifying shortly after. During my 35 years with KPMG in the Birmingham office I progressed to be Head of the Owner Managed Business Department and became an Audit Director in 2002. I was responsible for a large and continually changing portfolio for audits spanning many different sectors, including automotive, distribution, manufacturing, and property. These businesses covered owner managed, private equity and UK based subsidiaries of overseas groups from around the world. I have now joined Curo,  a firm that I have known, worked with and respected since it was set up, to continue with my passion to deliver efficient and effective audits to smaller and medium enterprises utilising the skills and experience I have gained. I strongly believe that independent audits provide real benefits to growing and developing businesses and their stakeholders.
